Don't shoot the messenger. A reliable friend said that he heard on ESPN Radio a number of rumors, including:

1. Federov to be signed by STL by Friday.

2. Tkachuk and change to Philly for Handzus, Ragnarsson, and change.

3. NYR close to deal w/ Det: Carter and Lindros for Cujo and Fischer.

4. NYR close to deal w/ Nieuwy to replace Lindros at 2d line C.

None of this is outside the realm of possibility, but I'll believe it when I see it.

I really pray a class act like Niewy would not resort going to the Rangers.

I will respect Nieuwy wherever he goes. Nieuwy signing the Rangers would be nothing like Holik or MacLean signing with the Rangers. I can't disrespect the guy. <-- double negative, yes I am a Literature major

A reliable friend giving you info from an UNreliable source just doesnt work. They also said Turgeon is coming to the Devils for 2 2nd's. What a bunch of tools!!!

MacLean went to the Rangers through San Jose so it wasn't as bad as Holik. Joey is a class act and El Chico would respect him no matter what but if he goes to the Rags, El Chico would lose some of that respect.

Sorry, but I have to shoot the messenger too, because it sounds like ESPN Radio got those deals from a 16 year old sometime Flyer, sometime Detroit fan off the Hockey's Future Trade Rumors Board.

St. Louis has no money.

Philadelphia has no money.

The NYR deal makes some sense, but Carter AND Lindros? Cujo's worth about a 2nd round pick at this point, any team that wants him is bidding against themselves.

Nieuwendyk to the Rangers.. doubt it. If he's the 2nd line center, who's the 1st line center? Nedved? And as for MacLean and Driver signing there, that was before the team had become a complete cesspool.

You guys need to understand that there is a big difference between reporting a rumor and believing it. I already expressed my doubts in the original post. So, Tri, you can express your own without suggesting that, as the conduit of the info I necessarily endorse it. You're better than that, right?

ESPN knows nothing about hockey and these rumors certainly bear that out.

Sure smelly, I just thought you took undue offense when DevFan basically said the same thing I did, in less words, that ESPN isn't a great rumor source, so I figured I would preface my post with that.. and I rarely have a problem with anyone posting trade rumors unless they are completely outlandish.. I post on most of those threads.

I would lose a great deal of respect for Joe if he signs across the river. Speak all you want of his class, but to go to the Rangers would show he is just interested in the $, as no one who lives of works here can be oblivious of how things are run at MSG. That being said, I don't see it happening; it would just be so out of character.

Where would they play NDyk if they signed him, with Nedved, Lindros, and Messier I just cant see him fitting in. Lindros or Messier wont go down to the 4th line, just imagine the sh!tfit Jurassic Mark or Carl Lindros would throw if their ice time was cut or his son in Carls place.

Couple of things:

First of all, I think it's a ridiculous rumor, just like the Turgeon to Devils rumor. But anything can happen.

Second of all, Nieuwy probably doesn't have the hate for the Rangers that most posters/long-time Devils do, so you'd have to cut him some slack there. And what if, at the end of the day, Lou doesn't make him an offer, the Leafs don't make him an offer, the Red Wings don't make him an offer, etc. IF (BIG IF) the Rangers did, what's he gonna do, say sorry, I'm not gonna play for you under any circumstances? Like I said, anything can happen.

But please, Lou, make him a fair offer!

"He has no ego," says Lou Lamoriello, general manager of the New Jersey Devils. "I don't think he has a selfish bone in his body. It gets infectious with people around him, but that's Joe. Having him here was something very special."
------------------------------------------------------------------------
And the simple truth is this -- before and after Joe Nieuwendyk, this franchise has not been as good. Yes the same could be said for others, but Nieuwendyk's effect on his team, on his team's best players, on the fans and in the community can only be compared to, well, what Jarome Iginla is doing now in Calgary.

Interesting post. I don't see the proposed Cujo deal happening. Supposedly, Joseph doesn't want to come to NY and he can block a deal. I also think Nieuwendyk to the Rangers makes no sense at all.

If Joeseph agrees to the Rangers he doesn't even deserve to be a Champion. Go where you will win.....It's your choice, worst comes to worse you battle it out with Dom in Detroit and get traded to a contender at the deadline.

Handzus had a season of a lifetime in Philly and is their #1 defensive center (face it, Primeau blows a huge one), no way the Flyers do that deal. Esp when they are already wasting money on LeClair.

Few things KAriya took 1 mill for a chance at the Cup... If Newy wants to win the Cup again he should sign a similar deal w/ NJ.

2 ) If Newy signs w. NYR then its all about the $$$ and I'll look at him no differently than Holik...Mac is different he was already 1 team removed form NJ.

3) Turgeon is soft I don't want him anyway

4) Lindros & Carter??? for CUJO makes no sense...Lindros and a pick maybe....
